How To Make The Perfect Kid-Friendly Halloween Snack Board
Before sending your kids out trick-or-treating, treat them to a fun, spooky and delicious Halloween snack board to help fill them up before their bags (and bellies) are filled with candy!
Every year we have our family and friends over before the kids head out for trick-or-treating on Halloween. We all make snacks for everyone to enjoy and take the time catch up on how everyone is doing. My goal is always to make something that is not only delicious, but healthy. Because come on, let’s be honest, the kids (okay, us adults probably too) are going to eat more than our fair share of candy over the next few days.
Our family doesn’t need a holiday to enjoy a snack board, although it does make things more fun when we can make festive treats! So, this Halloween I decided that we would all get a little creative in the kitchen and create a fun Halloween Snack Board. Since I have a love for making snack boards and everyone seems to enjoy them, I am thinking I will be making one next year too 😉
We pulled together a few of our favorite Halloween snacks, like these Taco-Stuffed Mini Pepper Mummies and Apple Monsters for the start of our Halloween-themed snack board. Then we filled in the rest with fruit and veggies (and some help from these fun candy eyes!).
The fun thing about making a Halloween snack board is that a few candy eyes, plastic spiders, cob webs, and a mummy or two go a long way! You can buy all of those online, but also keep a look out in the dollar section of your favorite retailer, I swear Halloween decor starts coming out in August now-a-days!
Charli had fun turning peanut butter and celery into creepy snacks by adding candy eyes, while Mia used guacamole, blue corn chips and some tiny pieces of bell pepper strips to make guacamole bats.
To make your snack board extra Halloweeny, I recommend using fruits and veggies that fit the theme! Think of produce that are naturally black, green and orange and arrange those around your board. Toss on those candy eyes to make them extra spooky.
Recommended Fruits & Veggies For The Perfect Halloween Snack Board
- Yellow and orange pepper slices
- Purple and green grapes
- Green and red apples
- Guacamole – Not only is it delicious, but it’s green!
- Hummus – Add some black olive slices to make little “bats”
- Fruit Dip – Fruit dips are always a welcome addition on any snack board, a simple cream cheese fruit dip is white and ghostly while a drop or two of red food coloring could make it extra eerie.
